The ceramic lamp taking Instagram by storm

Made and hand glazed in Portugal, the Lantana curvy ceramic orange lamp base at Habitat is flying off the shelves. So don't miss out.

According to the furniture retailer, the substantial uplift in sales is thanks to instagram's interior influencers styling it in their own homes and sharing it with their followers, who seem to be snapping it up in their droves.

Even with its air of 'Abigail's Party' about it, this retro style lamp still looks at home in a modern interior – and the hot tangerine hue of the base looks as good teamed with a drum shade in black or white, so it's versatile too.

Clare Griffin, Buyer for Lighting, at Habitatcomments: “We’ve seen sales of ceramic lamp bases more than double in the last few months at Habitat, and ceramics are now our fastest growing material in the table lamp category.

Our designs Lantana, Dascia and Calla are now overtaking many of our iconic bestselling designs that have been our top sellers for years, and shows that customers are looking for more unusual shapes and finishes that make these lamps decorative objet in their own right and look just as good ‘on’ or ‘off’."

Clare continues, "Notably we’re the only people on the high street to have a statement ceramic range like this with a wide range of brave colour glazes applied to interesting, sculptural shapes, making quite a traditional material feel very modern and relevant.

The reactive glazes too – as with our dinnerware collections – are proving popular with customers as this means that each ceramic lamp base is completely unique, so for a high street price you are getting a one-off design for your home.”
